As a team, we value flexibility, being self-driven, good collaboration, and the possibility to grow as a person.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • developing the category strategy for floating wind, most importantly floating foundation developers, floater manufacturers, and mooring and anchor suppliers
  • advising the floating wind business on contracting models, package composition, and go-to market strategy
  • constantly staying on top of current market developments and supplier landscapes
  • conducting cost structure analyses
  • leading negotiations and sourcing projects.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a master’s degree in engineering or in the commercial field and have successfully created and executed procurement strategies for complex technologies and supply chains and know how to guide the process end-to-end
  • have relevant experience from Offshore Wind, Oil & Gas, heavy steel, and/or concrete manufacturing
  • have a strong business orientation and experience with supplier development, should-cost analysis, various contracting models, and risk-sharing strategies for complex, managed, asset-heavy services
  • have excellent negotiation and communication skills, combined with a driven personality, enabling you to take the lead and create results
  • speak and write English fluently, are innovative, and can manage change, as the floating wind business grows from a lean start-up-like unit to a more experienced delivery organisation.
